"But we're all good guys… some play guitar, others play accordion to pass the time, when the time is long" - Georges Dors

A 6-piece jazz and blues band, the Bons Larrons inhabit the unexplored hinterland between Ernest Hemingway and Louis Armstrong. Sam Farrow (guitar) and Alex Leith (piano, vocals) have been writing and performing their own songs together since childhood and have enlisted Patrick Jenkins (trumpet), Nils (bass), Finlay (drums) and Tiffany (lead vocals) to complete their vision of stoic jazz. Their name is taken from the song 'La Manic' by Georges Dor and they set themselves to follow in that fine tradition of chanteurs de charmes.
